Today marks the launch of the newest search engine to pop up with hopes of challenging Google. The search engine is called Cuil. The name is pronounced like "cool." The big difference between the Cuil engine and the other search engines that pop up now and again is that Cuil was built by some of the same folks that used to work on Google's search operations.

In fact the main character behind Cuil, Anna Patterson, came to Google originally when Google purchased a previous search engine she developed to update its own search technology. Cuil says that its database currently has 120 billon pages in its index.

Patterson believes that Google has about 40 billion pages in its index. The results returned from a search on Cuil have images and are arranged in a magazine-style column layout. Cuil was launched with $30 million in venture capitol backing.
